I love to teach knitters. It has been a wonderful journey for me, meeting so many of you, and sharing my knowledge.
For a long time, I have envisioned a place where knitters can learn about traditional knitting on their own schedule. I have heard many people lament that they live too far from a yarn store, or are not able to travel to a workshop, but still wish they could take a class. I have experimented with different online platforms, and found that I needed and wanted to have more control over my content. So, I have been working on creating the School of Knitting Traditions!
In the 30+ years I have been teaching, I have developed almost 40 courses in this field of interest, and I still have more I would like to create! I have traveled to many museums in Europe to study garments from a variety of knitting traditions. I have read a lot of books on traditional methods, and I have experimented in my own knitting and writing, striving to be as clear as possible in my “how-to” explanations of these many garments and techniques. While I still love to teach knitters in person, I want to share this knowledge with others who are unable to come to my classes.
This is an enormous undertaking, and I envision that it will take several years for me to reformat all my courses and generate the accompanying videos to upload to the website. I hope for your patience during this process, and that you will be as excited as I am to experience the unfolding of this school. I am open to your suggestions at any time.
At this time, the first course is being uploaded and reorganized. If you are on my monthly newsletter list, or are one of my patrons on Patreon, you will be among the first to know when the School goes live. Please check back often. I will post the progress here.
